You'll get it Jim.
OK Steve - that will now be my main focus and form cue while I am setting up. I'll give it my best shot next time.

Hehe - I know what you mean by power clean mentality, however, the first pull off the floor for a PC is supposed to be slow

I thought the 405 was speedy - actually it was the fastest 405 I have ever done. Maybe some speed work after the meet would be a good paln for me.

Thanks so much Steve!

Ok then a high pull.

A power clean is still approached with more explosiveness than a deadlift. It's the mentality I'm talking about, not the lift specifics.

BtB is exactly right speed is key when it comes to deadlifts, or at least for me.

Don't worry you will be hitting 430+ very soon my friend!

Yes, I know Steve. The main issue I have with PC's is pulling too fast off the floor with my first pull. I'll try me hardest to get it done with my deads next time!

I wish I would have realized this earlier. I'll get it done!!

I was debating whether or not to show this to you guys, but in the end I thought I should, as I share almost everything with you guys. The vids are pretty scary.

In the first vid, my tremors started spinning wildly out of control. I managed to re-rack, but then I felt dizzy and almost fainted. On the second vid, I felt my whole body deflate like a balloon, and then I felt my body was going to shut down on the way up. All I could see is white and my eyes felt weird. I have never experienced such utter and complete failure before.

Before the session, I felt like a million bucks, and quite ready to lift. I thought I'd do some front squats and some light incline bench. Just before the vids, I did a set of 215 X5 and it felt normal and I felt fine.

Obviously, my body wasn't ready to lift at all this morning despite feeling quite the opposite. I know my tremors are always worse when I am in a weakened state, so I'm going to take the rest of the week off and likely resume lifting Sunday.

Good idea to take a week off; if this turns out to be just a one-off, I wouldn't worry too much but if it happens again, it would be worth getting checked out.

Could have just been an off-day.

I am hoping it is only a 1 off. It might have been the new pre-wo I took (NO Exhaust). I have never had any reaction to any pre-wo before tho. I threw it out just in case.

I agree - if it happens again I will get it checked out. Thanks Babs!!

just saw your vids Jim , i agree with 5kg that its a good idea to take some time off and recover.

as you said yourself your "tremors are always worse when I am in a weakened state"
you have been pushing very hard the last few weeks to get those 1RM numbers up

i wonder has this contributed to your weakened state?

hopefully its just a one off bad day and you will be back smashing the iron next week.

Yep, as you said, it looks like all the heavy lifting has caught up with me. I might have to try lifting Saturday instead of Sunday, as something has come up. I have to reno all day Sunday at moms house, so I don't wanna lift before that.

The tremors are normally a big hurdle to overcome anyway, but when they are that bad it is almost impossible to lift, so I re-racked it. Not sure how the dizziness came on tho.

Tough break Jim. Rest up!

If this is the first time you got hit hard with the dizziness, take a look at your front squat rack position. Its pretty easy to get the bar in a position where it pinches the carotid artery. You won't feel it, but the experience is usually spot on with what happened to you today.

On another note, a slightly bent bar can hit the artery even if the rack is good. I had this problem. Ended up having to mark my bar with a dot, and roll it when the bar was in the hooks so that when I unrack it, the curve of the bend faces away from my neck.

May or may not be the case but...
